Question about Craftsman 680915001 Edge Guide
I don't know why they even provide edge guides with jig saws, they don't work worth a flip. The problem is that, unlike a circular saw, the direction of cut is unlikely to be 90 degrees from the direction of the mounted edge guide. The blade mounting is not made to ensure that the blade is held exactly straight. When you follow a straight line with your cut you will see that the body of the saw will probably crab a bit sideways like a car that badly needs a wheel alignment. I suppose the edge guide can work on 1/4 inch plywood with an aggressive blade, but that will give you a very rough cut. Much better to draw the line and just follow it visually. If you need to do a lot of this, and you want a nice straight line, use a circular saw. Good luck.
